The typical "audiophile" receiver can deliver only 120 to 140 watts of "channel power." What this means is that only one or two channels can produce that 120 watts, not all channels driven, simultaneously, at rated power, all the time, like we can with our XPA-5.
Combined with high-end parts including a massive toroidal power transformer, precision 1% metal-film resistors, encapsulated film capacitors, and glass-epoxy PC boards, it’s no wonder the XPA-5 has reached legendary status among home theater devotees. With increased clarity, enveloping soundstage, added bass impact and control - it lets you hear movies the way they were meant to be heard!
